Back brace

Do any of you find that on longer rides you need a back brace? :shock:

I have used one of those back supporters that you see folks wearing at Home Depot. It helped on long days. Now you can get something similar from most Motorcycle clothing distributors, mine was cheaper at HD.

At first I was getting a sore back when I started riding again. Kind of funny and unexpected. All I was doing was commuting daily. After awhile it went away. I haven't worn a back brace although I did pick up a drivers backrest. I found so far that my endurance has increased and even riding for 3-4hrs at a time I dont get a sore back. I think I'd put it on the bike for a longer trip though just in case.

+1 on the back REST installed on the bike.

+2 on the backrest. For years my bikes have them installed. Seem to make a difference for me.

I find that it is more comfortable to be able to lean against something... but I have yet to buy a back support. When I take long trips (since I ride one up) I pack two duffles I have (which happen to be the perfect size), and secure them on the rear seat This works perfectly for me. If I remember to sit up straight all the time, my back get much less sore. I guess a back support (or something used as one) reminds you to have good posture.

Can anybody recommend an installed back rest for my 81 1100 GWI?

They look very comfortable.

As I am such a frail, delicate flower, I have been thinking about one. (Translates to: getting older.) :D

I don't tolerate voluntary stupidity very well, and it seems to be rampant now-a-days.
